Huge Tree Falls on Montrose Home

It looks pretty bad, and Thomas Duncan says he’d a lucky man.  The huge hickory tree in his front yard came down between 3 and 3:30 am Monday.

At least one of the large limbs punched a hole in his roof and caused part of the ceiling to collapse inside a spare bedroom.  But Duncan says it could have been worse.

He says an Oak tree that stands between his house and the hickory tree buffered the fall of the hickory and kept it from making a direct hit on his house.

Duncan, who was not injured,  says there’s a lot of cleanup to do, and joked he has a lot of hickory for anybody who wants it.
